Alison Brie Opens Up About Shooting Sex Scenes Directed By Husband Dave Franco

Alison Brie says it’s “actually not that weird” to behave in intercourse scenes together with her husband, Dave Franco, behind the digital camera.

Brie stars in “Somebody I Used to Know,” a romantic comedy the couple co-wrote, and Franco directed. Released earlier this month on Amazon Prime, the film follows a TV producer (Brie) who returns to her hometown and reconnects together with her ex-boyfriend (Jay Ellis.)

In an interview with Jezebel printed Friday, Brie mentioned she had no subject together with her husband directing her extra intimate scenes within the film.

“It doesn’t make Dave and I uncomfortable,” Brie mentioned.

She referred to performing alongside Franco within the 2017 comedy “The Little Hours” as “the ripping of the bandaid,” intercourse scene-wise. In that film, Franco had “makeout or sex scenes with like three other actresses ― and me!”

She added, “I realize that it sounds wild, but we are actors, this is our job. It’s actually not that weird.”

Brie mentioned she and Franco had been extra involved with the completed product than any interpersonal awkwardness:

“Our first priority is always the movie ― does the scene feel right and good?”

“Fidelity in my — in every relationship, and especially my marriage — is important to me,” Badgley mentioned. “And yeah, it just got to a point where I don’t want to do that.”
